New York. (invited up to see Jersey Boys).
My host is a charming former marine biologist who spends most of her weekends in her Upper East Side garage, her thick auburn hair tucked up under her cap, rebuilding a ragged-out 1953 MGTD.
"Guess you think you're pretty smart with your caftan offerings?" (The real reason for my invitation begins to unfold.) "Quite nice, but what about when it turns cooler?" (I remain silent, pretending to be absorbed in the process of ice melting in my glass.)
Next day, she slipped a note into my pocket. During the flight back, I read it. One word. Denim.
(You know, I think she's onto something).
